Choose peace inside

Peace has no boundaries. To be truly at peace with anything is to be fully at peace with everything.

But how can you be at peace when the world is so relentlessly demanding and complicated? How can you offer peace when you get none in return?

Understand that peace is not a transaction. It is a choice.

Peace is the way you can choose to be, whatever the situation. Peace is a choice that gives you great power in any situation.

You can be peaceful while still being ambitious and fully engaged with life and its many complications. You can be peaceful by following your own authentic purpose and living true to your highest values.

Peace is yours not to wish for, or to force upon others, or to negotiate, but to choose. Choose peace inside, and let the power flow out to your whole world.

— Ralph Marston
